Manitoba's FASD Strategy

Together we are Stronger: Continuing the success of Manitoba’s FASD Strategy

 

Each year the Manitoba government continues to invest in and expand the 2007 Interdepartmental FASD Strategy. The strategy remains committed to realizing five important goals:

Knowledge: Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can cause FASD

Prevention: Before, during and after pregnancy, girls and women have information, support and services

Intervention: People living with FASD and their families have assessment and diagnostic opportunities, supports and services

Evidence: Services are based on strong research, evaluation and community input

Quality: Trained service providers using best practice approaches

The strategy is informed by community stakeholders and experts and reports to the  Healthy Child Committee of Cabinet. It is  co-chaired by the Healthy Child Manitoba Office and Family Services and has membership from:  Aboriginal and Northern Affairs, Education and Advanced Learning, Health, Healthy Living and  Seniors, Housing and Community Development, Jobs and the Economy and Justice.
